Helping People Make The Best Decision!

I might look the same as others but if you look at how I work, the differences are significant.


I am a PROFESSIONAL, steadfastly committed to my clients, and a proud member of Harcourts Whangarei(Optimize Realty Ltd) and The Real People(TRP).
I moved to New Zealand from Korea in 2002 and am multi-talented, being a professional photographer and IT specialist, both of which are of benefit to the team when it comes to property presentation and marketing.

As your real estate advocate, I will help you buy and sell property with confidence and in-depth measured resources. I will not only sell your lovely property or search for your dream property, I will also guide you through the entire process including helping with due diligence and negotiation on your behalf, to achieve the best result.

I have a high work ethic and focus completely on my clients to ensure that the process, whether it be buying or selling, is as smooth as can be. I am understanding and patient even with the most indecisive buyers. My analytical character, experience and well-researched market knowledge saves clients time, money and stress. I have a passion for providing excellent service.


I will provide you with tailor-made marketing plan that reaches all possible active buyers, as well as pinpointing potential passive and out of area buyers which can have a big impact on your final sales price.


Once you have made the decision to buy a property, knowing how to research the market and what to look for in a neighbourhood are key. Let me share insights into the local market conditions and are aware of properties that are on, off and coming onto the market.

Property Management

Investing in property is often seen as one of the best ways to create wealth in New Zealand. However, knowing how to maximise your investment and position it for success can be just as challenging. Let me guide you through each step.

"Extremely happy with Justin and his professionalism throughout the sale of our property. Will be recommending him to all!"

Jesse and Katherine

"We are so happy that we had a salesperson like Justin to help us in the process of buying our first home. As a first home buyer our knowledge was very limited, but Justin was very knowledgeable. Also he was happy to answer questions any time of the day regardless of whether he was working or not. Justin was so approachable and also considered customer satisfaction. He was so welcoming when we asked for viewing. We are so happy with our first sweet home. Thanks for all support and guidance to help us to achieve our dream."

Benito and Dyvia

"We have purchased our first home and Justin was the agent who helped us through the process. He was prompt in responding to enquiries about the house and was readily available to provide access to the house in order for us to make our final decision. Justin was full of knowledge and was happy to share it. He was customer focussed and it was a pleasure working with him in the pursuit of our first home."

Jenna and Leon

"We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Justin for completing the sale of the property and all the hard work he put in for us. We really appreciate the advice and consistent communication during the sale process, to be honest there were way more decisions to make than we initially thought there would be to sell a house, especially when we are not in person to deal with it ourselves. Fortunately the reassurance Justin provided and dealing with all situations professionally, made it stress free for us. Thanks once again for going the extra mile and spending the extra time making this happen. I would have no hesitation on recommending Justin to anyone else out there wanting to buy or sell."


"We want to extend our gratitude to Justin Cho for being an amazing real estate agent. He journeyed together with us from the early stages of house hunting to purchasing our very first home. Justin is knowledgeable and insightful with the current house market and he went over and above in helping us. We would not have been able to purchase our first home if it was not for Justin’s advice, guidance and recommendations along the way. He has a practical approach, he answered every question that we raised and most importantly he is trustworthy. He helped us in prioritising the important aspects and we truly learnt a lot from him. We would recommend Justin to anyone who is looking for a hard-working real estate agent.
Thank you, Justin for your hard work and for giving us your time and efforts."

Bruce and Nia

"We have just purchased a property through Barfoot and Thompson, Whangarei. The process could have been extraordinarily complicated as we currently live overseas. Instead it was made enjoyable, painless and efficient by Thomas and the team. Justin acted as our ‘Buyers Agent’ throughout the process. Through email contact he was able to discern exactly what we were looking for. While other agents simply added us to a mailing list of all the properties they had listed, Justin effectively selected just those that met our very specific criteria and presented to us the house that we immediately knew was ‘the one’. We had one very brief opportunity to return New Zealand and view the house but Justin managed to coordinate this together with earlier viewings by friends and family. Justin was on had to guide us through the pre-auction bidding process and to act on our behalf at the auction where he gave us a virtual presence via Skype. Thank you once again Justin and the rest of the team at Barfoot and Thompson, Whangarei."

Nigel & Sue C

"With the help and professionalism of Justin I am now the proud owner of my property.
Justin was able to arrange private viewings at very short notice and at a time that suited me. Justin offered me sound advice and professional opinions which helped me make my decision to buy the property and he participated in the auction excellently. I would certainly recommend Justin to my friends and family if they ever consider buying in Whangarei."

Liz B

"From the first phone call from Justin when I had so little knowledge of how to purchase a property, to the moment he gave me the keys on settlement day, he always went the extra mile providing me with the vest of services I could think of. The word used by a friend of mine to describe him was “outstanding” and it did not take long for me to see that he actually is. He is also a good communicator with a fast response time to calls and emails. I highly recommend Justin to all."

Yosefu U

"Hi there Justin, firstly I want to thank you for all your help in helping me and my family find a home, I’m happy to say we have found one and move in, in two weeks time! Thank you so much for all your help, you’ve been amazing!"

Carlene P

"Justin was fantastic in everything he did - and considering the amount of hours he put in as well, he always had a smile on his face! Everything was done in such a professional manner and I wouldn’t hesitate to use the service of Justin again in the future."

Nicole S

"We want to thank Justin for helping us find a house for our daughter and son-in-law in Onerahi, and a bach for our friends in Taurikura. Both couples are delighted!
Justin was so helpful and patient throughout the negotiations as well as post sales, and pre-auction sale process was very fair and transparent. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Justin to anyone who is wishing to purchase or sell a property in Whangarei."

Tony & Jean M

"I would like to say a special thanks to Justin Cho. Throughout the process he was very professional and above all thoughtful, especially to the vendors and in no small part to me also. His communication was completely thorough & exemplary. I am grateful for the help given during the sales process that helped make it go through very smoothly. I wish you every success in the future. I believe you deserve it."
